New Zoo Entrance and Parking Lot

I blogged in error that I saw no progress at the zoo new entrance and parking lot. The Barton financed project is well underway. My lame excuse is that I only play on the tennis courts and did not drive the perimeter of the park or I would have noticed. I did note the removal of two tennis courts which will limit tournament play this summer. However, 7 clay courts, unusual for a community this size, and also 4 lighted hard courts are available in upper and lower Glen Oak Park.

Several years ago, a study was made that proved clay courts were less expensive to maintain. Also, the courts are free only because it would cost more to supervise and collect user fees.
